Hi all,

I am looking at upgrading my current PC in preparation for GTA 6 and in general as I am due an upgrade anyway.

Just before I list the specs, I just want you to know I mainly game, but I do make music and also use this for work as well.

Current set up is:

Intel Core I7 9700
32 GB Corsair Ram
NVIDEA GeForce GTX 1660 TI
ASUSTEK Prime H310-PLUS R2 - This limits my ram speed as well.
Seagate St 2TB SSD
Adata 300gb SSD
Samsung 870 EVO SSD 1 TB

-----------------------------------------

I was contemplating going with a 3060TI but I would need a new PSU and CPU to go with it to avoid bottlenecks.

I can spend around £200-300 maybe on a CPU and powersupply.

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5700X 3.4 GHz 8-Core Processor (£156.00 @ Amazon UK)
CPU Cooler: Thermalright Assassin X Refined SE ARGB 66.17 CFM CPU Cooler (£20.00 @ Computer Orbit)
Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING B550-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard (£124.99 @ Scan.co.uk)
Video Card: XFX Speedster QICK 319 Core Radeon RX 6750 XT 12 GB Video Card (£329.98 @ Ebuyer)
Power Supply: Corsair RM750e (2023) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (£85.99 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £716.96

If you're not using the stock Intel cooler, maybe you can reuse your current cooler instead of buying a new one. Reuse your RAM. Sell your current CPU+Mobo, that might give you some more money to put towards a GPU.

RX 6750XT should perform better than a 3060Ti on average, and is cheaper. I can't imagine 3060Ti's are priced too well. 4060Ti is probably a better option than 3060Ti if you really want to go with NVidia.

What games are you playing? Why are you so confident that you'll need to overcome a CPU bottleneck? An i7-9700 shouldn't really hold back a 3060Ti in too many situations.
